Southland Girls' High School participates in Te Hautonga (senior) and Ngā Pūtangitangi (junior) Kapa Haka competitions.
The name given to the combined senior SGHS and SBHS group is Te Ara Hou ki Mua. The SGHS junior group are called Te Piki Kotuku.
Our Kapa Haka is passionately supported by staff, we welcome input and support from whanau, and the door is always open to those who wish to support in some way.
If your daughter is interested in joining our school's Kapa Haka groups, they can have a chat with Mrs Davis at school.

The SGHS Pasifika dance group Oli Ula is a committed group of girls with a passion for dance. They perform yearly at the Pasifika Festival and at school celebrations.
The group takes its name from a rare Samoan flower that grows only in a few locations, making it a real treasure and hard to acquire. The girls felt that this name fitted well with their group and also portrays the Habit of Mind 'Persistence'.
Oli Ula looks forward to the group growing in numbers, learning dances from other Pasifika cultures and sharing what they learn with their fellow students.
If you would like to join, please see Mr de Blois.
